All my life has been a struggle with food and my weight. My struggle goes back to early childhood, I can remember when my Mom would say, “you have to eat all your food before you can go out to play!” Being made fun of as a “fat” kid in my early teenage years was NO FUN let me tell you!!!!! Then after DECADES of my weight yo-yoing from as low as 135lbs . to just recently topping out at my highest weight of 235lbs!!!!! At that point I said, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!”
At 48 years old I find myself at the stage of life where it’s a been there done that kinda time for me. I have met some of my goals I have wanted to achieve, opened and created a successful business, restored several cars, raced cars, played guitar in a band. However all these achieved while still struggling with my weight and health. I should also add with much pride, I have a 6 year old son, YES 6!!!! So that means when he wants to go play ball, or throw the football around at 10 years old or so, I will be 53!!! HOLY **** So I decided I better do something or I will miss out on that experience because I of being to over weight , out of shape, and unhealthy to even begin to be there for my son!!!!
Ok, with that being said, I decided it was time to say good-bye to the material things in my life and any spare play money would go to me and my health. Which brings me to the day I emailed I.F.C. and all it took was a short meeting with Steph Woods to get the kick in the A** to spark the motivation that I needed to get started! Since then I am down 30lbs.! My body fat is down 5%, 8 inches gone from my waist, my range of motion is up 100% and I feel so HEALTHY!! I find it fairly easy to stay on track now especially with all the help from Steph and Angie. They have given me the tools and the knowledge I have been missing all these years . Such as, what foods to eat , when to eat and portion sizes. Also, they taught how to exercise correctly, when to exercise and also when to rest. Plus , when to give yourself a little reward without triggering any OLD BAD HABITS!!! All would say to anyone who is thinking about joining I.F.C. DO IT! Don’t try to second guess yourself , JUST DO IT! It
will be the best money you can spend on yourself , your health and your future.
